(Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)Although the Iowa Hawkeyes will lose important pieces from the program to the NFL Draft, the reloading process has gone fairly smooth for Kirk Ferentz.With the offseason in full swing for head coaches around the country, Ferentz is on the hunt for defensive talent.The Hawkeyes currently have the No. 39 recruiting class in the country, per 247Sports’ rankings.Iowa received great news yesterday when Jermari Harris announced his commitment to the Hawkeyes. The three-star safety was also considering Ball State, but ultimately believes defensive coordinator Phil Parker can help develop his skills to the best of his ability. Harris spent this past weekend visiting the campus at Iowa, before revealing his commitment choice.Another recruit that visited the Hawkeyes last week could also join the program as soon as tomorrow.Three-star defensive end Taajhir McCall will select from between Army, Navy and Iowa on signing day. Unlike Harris, his decision won’t be announced on Twitter.100% C O M M I T T E D TO…— Jermari Harris✨ (@Jermariharris25) February 4, 2019Iowa also earned a commitment for its 2020 recruiting class in the form of Logan Jones.
